footwear

I do not understand the fetish/ obsession/ adoration most women seem to have for shoes. I own perhaps five pairs, counting boots. This is because shoe stores are among my least favorite shopping excusions.

Through some bit of potluck, I'd managd to find a pair of heels that looked dressy, matched nearly all of my teaching clothes and were actually comfortable to wear for eight hours straight (bear in mind that I'm on my feet for most of that time.) Said shoes have now betrayed me and I am grateful for Motrin. (sighs) Back to the mall!

So I'm guessing you don't run around to look for Monolo Blahnik's and Jimmy Choos....

I am so glad that I am built differently in the anatomical department...I don't need to wear high heels.

I don't understand it either - but as I'm male that's normal.

I've always hated shoe shopping right from being a kid - it was always hard for me to find shoes back then due to a difference between the widths of my feet. My parents usually had to drag me through 4 or 5 different shops before we'd find anything that fitted me.

My goodness, I've found the first woman on the face of the earth who admits to only needing five pairs of footware.

Now if I could only find one not addicted to ibuprofen...

Lemming, give Zappos.com a try. If you spend that much time on your feet, you really owe it to yourself to get a good pair of shoes.
